The official Bellevue College website provides prospective students, enrolled students, alumni, Bellevue College employees, and members of the community with college information and services. Bellevue College may solicit a limited number of commercial sponsors or advertisers for the college’s website to provide enhanced services for students.

The college reserves the right to limit the number and placement of ads or sponsorships on the Bellevue College website and will only accept advertising or sponsorship that proposes a commercial transaction. The college will refuse any advertisement or sponsorship that is political or religious in nature; that contains sexual content; and/ or that pertains to alcohol, tobacco or illegal drugs. The reasons for these specified exclusions are that the college has an interest in: 1) obtaining fair market value for advertisement on its website; 2) maintaining its neutrality on controversial subjects; 3) presenting an environment where advertisers or sponsors may be assured that their products or services are presented in an appropriate environment; and 4) support the mission and strategic plans of Bellevue College.
